PP cement bags from Cosmo Films

Cosmo Films launched a special BOPP film for cement bags. This film is used for laminating block bottom bags made of woven polypropylene. According to Cosmo, the special film launched provides additional protection to the contents inside by adding moisture barrier, as well as enhances the print quality of the printed material making it more appealing for the consumer.

After China, India is world’s second largest cement producer, producing approx 300 million tonnes per annum. This number is forecasted to go up to 407 million tpa by 2017. Cosmo sees a huge potential in this market, as only 15% of cement gets currently packed in block bottom bags. Laminated bags have already done well in Pakistan and Bangladesh and consumption is already on the rise in Indian market.
